Bandit dons bucket to hide face while robbing ex-employer

Many burglars are known for their array of disguises. One burglar in Slidell, La. apparently forgot his and improvised.

Surveillance video shows the 23-year-old suspect used a bucket when he robbed his former employer, Kenney's Seafood.

The bucket seemed to hinder him a little. The suspect had to tilt up the bucket every so often to catch a glimpse of his surroundings.

It turns out his disguise was a bad idea. Police were able to identify and arrest the suspect at his home.
